This recipe is a variation of Nimz's Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe (recipe #66241). My son has a severe egg allergy and I have been looking high and low for a pancake recipe. I learned that applesauce can be a substitute for eggs when egg only provides moisture to the recipe. 1/4 cup applesauce can take the place of one egg. So I decided to use a buttermilk pancake recipe to test this, since there are other ingredients to provided fluffiness (ie. buttermilk, baking soda, and baking powder) and it worked! My son has finally eaten a delicious pancake - one that does not taste like paste. Try and enjoy!
